“I am so proud of Eleanor, Andrea and Sean, and the teams involved with the two partnership schemes. Their hard work and dedication is a credit to the whole university and the wider nursing community.” 

The Student Nursing Times Awards provide the opportunity to congratulate lecturers, practice supervisors, universities, trusts and private organisations which are going above and beyond to support student nurses.
